How to check your Gift Card balance on Amazon
Many Amazon shoppers have some unused cash sitting idle in their Gift Card accounts without them even knowing about it.
If you believe you might have some Gift Card cash sitting in your account, you can easily find out with a couple of mouse clicks or a few taps. Just follow the steps below:
If you shop Amazon in a web browser on a laptop or desktop computer:
1 – Visit Amazon.com and log into your account.
2 – Click the Gift Cards link located on the menu just underneath the Search box. You should now see your gift card balance displayed near the middle of the page.
If you use the Amazon app on a mobile device:
1 – Open the Amazon app and log into your account.
2 – Tap the little ‘person‘ icon located at the bottom of the screen.
3 – Tap Your Account.
4 – Scroll down to the ‘Payments’ section and tap Manage gift card balance. You should now see your gift card balance displayed on the screen.
